The stunning Castle of Mey dates back to the 14 century but hit the headlines in 1952 when The Queen Mother fell in love with it while visiting friends who lived locally. She bought and refurbished it, and it became her special highland retreat until her death. Her grandson, the Prince of Wales, still visits the Castle for two weeks each year in August, the spectacular scenery and local farm land hold a special place in the heart of Charles as it did his Grandmother. There is plenty to explore with tours of the Castle available, walled gardens, 30 acres of grounds and a new animal centre ideal for children to visit, In addition these is a great cafe and shop! Well worth a visit.
